FDA Approves Natrelle Inspira Cohesive Breast Implants
The FDA has recently given the green light to a new type of breast implant. Manufactured by Allergan, the Natrelle Inspira Cohesive implants are the latest option for those looking for a fuller bust. The new model combines Allergan’s highly cohesive gel with a high gel-fill ratio to achieve an implant that is firmer and fuller.
Cohesive gel is a relatively new material for implants, having been on the market for about 5 years. This material has the texture of a gummy bear and is effective for creating a natural-feeling breast augmentation. The new Natrelle Inspira implants keep the same size as older implants, but use more gel filling to keep these implants firmer, fuller, and tauter. What does this mean for patients?
Smooth, soft implants don’t adhere to the body, leaving implants free to float around inside the breast. This can cause the implant to drift and cause slumping. Patients may feel ripples form in the implants over time. With a firmer texture, Natrelle Inspira implants don’t move around. They are more densely filled, which results in a more round, full look. These implants may be an excellent choice for younger patients since breasts tend to be perkier when you are young. For older patients, or patients who have had children, the result may not look as natural.
Natrelle Inspira implants also result in a higher projection, meaning the breasts extend further from the torso. Often, patients are seeking more projection, rather than a larger bust. Greater projection can enhance the look of the bust and give the appearance of size, without adding the strain of larger breasts. If you are seeking a more pronounced bust without the adding too much to your cup size, these implants may be the right choice for you.
